Beyond Postmodernism: Onto the Postcontemporary is a collection designed to provide the reader with an alternative to viewing the world through the lens of Postmodernism. Contributors to this collection utilize and define such critical tools as transhumanism, post-post theory, posthumanism, and postcontemporary theory. Other essays focus on interpreting texts or genres, yielding impressive conclusions that were ",beyond", the scope of postmodern discourse. Eclectic in nature, while examining works as diverse as Julia Ward Howe's The Hermaphrodite and Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses, yet unified in a commonsensical statement that postmodernism has perhaps ruled too long in critical discussions, this collection is also designed to attract those seeking or awaiting something new in critical methodology to consider joining in the postcontemporary dialogue.
